Here's the info in English by Nippon Cinema:

An official website for Masayuki Suo's "The Terminal Trust" has been launched along with a YouTube embed of
the film's new teaser trailer.

As you can tell from the opening frame of the teaser, the big PR draw of this project seems to be the fact that it
reunites Koji Yakusho and Tamiyo Kusakari, co-stars of Suo's blockbuster 1996 film "Shall We Dance?" The
pair have not appeared together in anything else until now.

The new film deals with anctity of life's concerns vs. the right to be allowed to die. Kusakari plays a doctor named
Ayano Orii and Yakusho plays Shinzo Egi, a patient with a serious illness who tells her that when the time comes,
he wants her to ease his suffering quickly by not placing him on life support. Tadanobu Asano and Takao Osawa
also co-star.

"The Terminal Trust" will be released by Toho in Japan on October 27, 2012.
